Form? Sportsmanship? Team- work? And how! Our Pulaski hoys carried off honors in all three, and with such a combination turned out a basketball team for 1940 which did itself proud! To mention one game which seemed most spectacular would be a difficult task; every game was filled to the brim with thrills, spills and ex- citement a plenty! Almost every one game was close and hard fought, but our daring lads held their opponents to the last and came out victorious in nine games and surrendered six reluctantly, but in true sportsman- ship fashion. On the opening night they lost to Bland by a score of 18-25; but on January 16 smashed a glorious vic- tory over Radford to the tune of 29- 26! Then came Narrows! But even they fell under our offensive stride as we beat them 25-20. On Jan- uary 26 we knocked Marion Hi for a loop as the score board chalked up another hit of 32-19, but lost to Draper on February 2, as they top- ped us slightly 18-21. Other scores were as follows: Christiansburg 21- 28; Radford 36-19; Shoemaker 27-48; Marion 26-25; Bland 21-14; Chris- tiansburg 25-31 ; Draper 35-37; Nar- rows 19-16; Blacksburg 34-1 9; Blacks- burg 31-18. Captain Ralph Tester proved his exceptional ability by leading his team in high scoring honors, and Bill Bouldin contributed his part by sinking goals from every angle. Jack Bouldin and Louis Painter showed excellent form in their guard posi- tions, as did Michele, Farmer, Ken- nedy, Dick Haislip, Bow Haislip and Donald Morehead, who always came through in the most spectacular style to clinch the games.

What a critical minute! At the sound of the final whistle a double foul was committed ; both teams were given a free shot! The Bland girl took first try and. ...missed! Gilmer tried for the Orange and Black and ...it was GOOD! W hat a victory! That was only an example of what proved to be one of the most exciting basketball seasons we’ve ever known. Our Oriole Darlings, led by their alert and versatile captain, Sarah Lugar, won eight contests, and lost only six. The superb guarding of Adair, Lugar, Leache and Dotty Gilmer, the spectacular shooting of Ann Andring (high score of 85 points), Ruth Webb, Co-Captain Isabel Gil- mer, Donna W’illis, and the faithful and untiring cooperation of the re- mainder of the squad, put out a team which was a credit to the school. Games were played with other schools of Southwest Virginia, in- cluding Radford 18-10 in our favor, Dublin 30-6, Marion 13-16, Narrows 14-9, Draper 23-17, Christ iansburg 13-29, Radford 16-13, Shoemaker 18- 36, Marion 12-18, Bland 14-13, Chris- tiansburg 8-10, Draper 18-23, Nar- rows 27-30, and Blacksburg 16-9.

OTHER SWIMMING N EXT in the line of sports’ highlights came our Goldfish team! And what a team of swimmers they did make! They practiced three times a week, usually in Roanoke, under Mr. Ralph O’Hair’s ex- cellent coaching. Last year we were the proud winners of the State Swimming Trophy; but this season, although both David Jameson and Johnny Tate shat- tered several State records, Roanoke gained enough points to hol d it for the year 1940. John Tate was the captain this year, and the following team showed un- excelled cooperation: Sonny Miller, George Gerberich, Ohmer Crowell, James Romano, Porter Ham, and David Jame- son (ex-captain). BASEBALL Our Baseball team, too, lived up to the name set by the forerunning sports- men of the year, and won victory after victory in a most successful season. The future “Babe-Ruth-Men” included Harold Smith, Rex Andrews, Moody Vann, Watt Amburn, Robert Alley, Ralph Tester, Charles Michele, Forrest Owen, Bill Bouldin, George Gerberich, Donald Morehead, Popeve Farmer, Hen- sel Hawkins, Mobley Durham, Bow SPORTS At the 1940 State meet at Blacks- burg, John won first place in the 100- yard free style and broke the State re- cord in the 220-yard free style. David won first in the 50-yard breast stroke and in the 50-yard backstroke, breaking the State records in both. Other con- testants came in at various intervals, in- cluding Porter Ham, who won second place in the 50-yard free style. The resulting scores were Roanoke 38, Pulas- ki 32, and Blacksburg 9. Although we lost our treasured trophy, we’re more than proud of our Goldfish who brought honor to our Alma Alater’s name. Haislip, Hez Malone, Andrew Ashby, Benny Webb, Junior Folden, and Sonny Miller. Coach Coiner hopes that in 1941 baseball will be considered equal in rank of popularity with football and our other sports. Other sports throughout the year were tennis, ping-pong, softball, track, and innumerable others.
